The culinary tour of Boma and Jiko sounds like a fun activity could someone tell me more about how to sign up, the price ect.

I think we will try the buses this time too... we kept seeing the bus come for AKL as we were walking to the car which was hilarious as I wanted the car because I was worried they would be bad.
I have added you to the list. You are my first for 2014....

They're free! Look at the Activies Guide when you get there, it will tell you what time they are. You just show up about 10 min. before. I've done them both & was the only person on the tour - so I got all the samples!

I thought I had read they discontinued doing this tour, hopefully not!

Average stride length: 2.2 feet for women and 2.5 feet for man or you can estimate stride length relative to your height (females: height x .413 equals your stride length; males: height x .415 equals your stride length).

So 9.2 to 10 miles....

Can you please add us to the list? We will be staying at AKL in a pool view room (hoping to be close to the pool and Mara), 8/22-8/30. This will be our first stay at AKL, we have eaten at Boma many times and we have always wanted to try AKL, so glad we will get the chance this year!

When we were at the AKL the beginning of December, the tour was suspended until after the holidays.

It was back on again during my trip earlier this month BUT it wasn't on the schedule or posted on the Activities Board!

So if you don't see it listed, check at the Boma podium. It's normally 4:00pm daily.

I did it in the last week of January, or maybe it was February 1st.

We'll be in AKL June 3-7. First time at AKL for DH and I (first time at Disney for my 2 boys!) I had no idea about all the activities at AKL! Looking at the schedule for February and getting excited for our stay

Its so easy to plan a vacation somewhere warmer when its winter time where I am... even being able to go around in jeans and a sweatshirt would make it feel like

Does there tend to be many options for you at 7 months? My husband wants to buy in at Aulani which I am fine with, but I do wonder if we will be able to stay at AKL when we head that way instead...

Its true... my husband wouldn't even talk about other resorts this trip and we have only been once! I should have seen the others first, now I may never get to!
